Former White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney said only six or eight people would leak the information to the FBI, so the whistleblower is someone very close to Trump.
Video of Mulvaney on New Day by CNN:
I didn’t know there was a safe in Mar-a-Lago and I was chief of staff for 15 months. That would be someone who runs things on a day to day basis, who knew where documents are, so it would be someone very close to the President, I’m guessing there’s probably six or eight people that had that kind of information.
I don’t know the people in the inner circle these days. I can’t name anyone that comes to mind, but your instincts are good when you know where the safe is and you know the documents are in ten boxesIn the basement, you’re pretty close to the President.
If Mulvaney is right and the informant is someone very close to the former president, it makes sense that the FBI might also know what Trump intended to do with the documents he stole from the White House.
Trump took away 10-15 boxes of documents, some of which are top secret information.
It makes no sense that the DOJ’s division that deals with national security, espionage and sabotage would deal with this matter if the only concern was getting the documents back.
Trump won’t release the warrant because there’s something really bad about it, and if Mulvaney is right, the FBI whistleblower is someone very, very close to Donald Trump.
